I love love love this car. It is very enjoyable to drive, delivering instantaneous acceleration, a compliant ride and remarkably controlled handling. It's beautiful, quiet, and fast. It seats a total of 7 people: 5 adults and 2 kids (under 48" tall). The panaramic sunroof for both front and backseat passengers to enjoy. The car has a range of about 280 miles (but I usually only charge to 235 miles for regular use) depending on how aggressively you drive and free charging at any Tesla Supercharging Station (the navigation system will automatically route these into trips where it is required so there isn't any guesswork on your part). Model S is designed from the ground up to be the safest, most exhilarating sedan on the road. With unparalleled performance delivered through Tesla's unique, all-electric powertrain, Model S accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in as little as 5 seconds. Experience pure acceleration without the bumps of shifting gears.

How do I charge your electric car?
Electric car charging is available at many locations (metered spaces, parking lots, parking garages) around the city. Often it is free. Look for the EV charging signs. Outside of the city, charge at any Tesla Supercharging Station (the navigation system will automatically route these into trips where it is required so there isn't any guesswork on your part) for free.
With paid charging, we are part of the ChargePoint network so you are welcome to charge at any of their stations (any charges will be billed to you at the end of your rental). You are also welcome to charge at my home or return it with any charge remaining, I'll bill you afterwards $10 in electricity if there is less than 75 miles remaining which beats waiting to charge anywhere else.
Do I have to return the car charged?
No. You are welcome to return it with any charge remaining unless I am picking it up, then I would need enough (30-40 miles) to get to a charging station. If you bring the car with under 100 miles in charge, I'll bill you $10. If you bring the car with under 200 miles but more than 100 miles in charge, I'll bill you $5.
Are you able to deliver to SFO or my location?
Yes, and delivery is free with rentals over 7 days. Otherwise, please put in your address so the delivery fee is calculated properly.
What happens if I go over the miles allocated?
The overage charge is 75 cents per mile. I am pretty flexible if you are over a little but please discuss with me in advance if you think you will go over more than 10%.
I'm thinking about buying a Tesla, is this a good example of what ownership would be like?
Yes. It is. Tesla has excellent roadside assistance and is only a phone call away similar to the Turo's support. Charging at home is extremely convenient so if your hotel has EV charging, then the experience will be similar. Please let me know in advance if you are test driving. I will be happy to share with you my experience.
2014 Tesla Model SMelanie's Tesla154.54
First of all, I want to tell everyone that Melanie is a super sweet person. She went out of her way to help my family enjoy her Tesla. She was even understanding when we hit a ladder that had flown into the roadway from the rack of a work truck. My complaint is not with Melanie, but with Turo, as they decided it was necessary to take a 500 dollar deposit out of my credit card although I'd bought their insurance (as had Melanie) and have fine insurance of my own. It's Friday end of day as I write this, and the accident happened on Monday. Still the 500 dollar charge sits on my account. This is an inappropriate and greedy policy of Turo's. Beware.
